UW Bothell offers three Middle Level Endorsements for teachers in Washington State:
Middle Level Humanities;
Middle Level Math
Middle Level Science
Middle Level Endorsements enable an individual to teach in grades 4 - 9 in a specific subject area.
We have two distinct programs for adding these endorsements: a Pathway 2 program for qualified, currently certified teachers; and an integrated Pathway 3 program for the students currently enrolled in our teacher education programs. Please refer the column below that applies to your situation.
You are eligible to add a Middle Level Endorsement via Pathway 2, if you hold a Washington State regular teaching credential (Residency or Professional), but not a CTE credential.
Information for Current or Future:
K-8 Teacher Certification Students
You are eligible to add a Middle Level Endorsement via Pathway 3 inconjunction with your enrollment in either the K-8 Teacher Certification Program or the Secondary and Middle Level Teacher Certification M.Ed.
Please see the web pages for your specific program for more information.
You can find more information about teacher certification and pathways to adding endorsements on the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) website.
